There's no excuse for allowing Rinaldo to stay in the league. Every game he's given is another chance to end the career of an actual hockey player.

I thought 40 would have been fair. I heard others saying he should have gotten a full season. 6 is nothing. This was an unsolicited punch to the face. How is this different from McSorley on Brashear or Bertuzzi on Moore? How? It isn't, with the exception that no one almost died this time. You want to get these types of plays out of the game, you penalize the act and you don't let players off just because they didn't paralyze someone. George Parros showing he's no different than his predecessors at being light on repeat offenders.

Anaheim Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL on Sunday, ending the fourth-longest consecutive games streak in NHL history.

Cogliano was suspended for an interference penalty against Los Angeles forward Adrian Kempe on Saturday night in the Ducks' 4-2 victory. Cogliano hit Kempe after the Kings player released the puck, and was assessed a minor penalty for interference.

It should be a requirement the puck must be on the ice for a play not to be offside. How can a linesman see a player's skate and the puck at 'the same time' if the puck is elevated when it crosses the blueline?

The rule is so stupid. It should have nothing to do with a players skate being on the ice or not. It should have to be that the players leg, foot, whatever, is completely across the blue line before the puck is. Not that his skate is touching the ice. This is the single most frustrating use of video review I have ever seen.

Yup. At least he got 5 games this time. Could have and should have been more given his track record, but at least they didn't write this one off completely.

Also embarrassing was how Bruce Cassidy defended Marchand by declaring he was just protecting himself. Anyone who saw the play can see Marchand goes out of his way to throw his elbow into Johanssen's head. At no point did Johanssen threaten Marchand. Classic Bruins. But you can see from the way they played us in past weeks that they continue to be a team of cheapshot artists.
